Dynamics in the Practice of Structural Design Book Excerpt:

This book is a practitioner-friendly approach to dynamics on structural design, oriented to facilitate understanding of complicated issues without their elaborate mathematical formulations.While the chapters follow logically from one another, each one deals independently with a subject in structural dynamics; this approach allows the engineer to go directly to the topic of his or her interest at a given moment.Throughout each chapter the reader will find the text set in two different forms, for different levels of the topic in consideration, which will enable him to postpone for a second reading deeper explanations.Conceived as practical support for engineers whenever they want to review a subject related to dynamics in the practice of structural design, this book can be of great help for students of engineering.

Structural Dynamics of Earthquake Engineering Book Excerpt:

Given the risk of earthquakes in many countries, knowing how structural dynamics can be applied to earthquake engineering of structures, both in theory and practice, is a vital aspect of improving the safety of buildings and structures. It can also reduce the number of deaths and injuries and the amount of property damage. The book begins by discussing free vibration of single-degree-of-freedom (SDOF) systems, both damped and undamped, and forced vibration (harmonic force) of SDOF systems. Response to periodic dynamic loadings and impulse loads are also discussed, as are two degrees of freedom linear system response methods and free vibration of multiple degrees of freedom. Further chapters cover time history response by natural mode superposition, numerical solution methods for natural frequencies and mode shapes and differential quadrature, transformation and Finite Element methods for vibration problems. Other topics such as earthquake ground motion, response spectra and earthquake analysis of linear systems are discussed. Structural dynamics of earthquake engineering: theory and application using Mathematica and Matlab provides civil and structural engineers and students with an understanding of the dynamic response of structures to earthquakes and the common analysis techniques employed to evaluate these responses. Worked examples in Mathematica and Matlab are given. Explains the dynamic response of structures to earthquakes including periodic dynamic loadings and impulse loads Examines common analysis techniques such as natural mode superposition, the finite element method and numerical solutions Investigates this important topic in terms of both theory and practise with the inclusion of practical exercise and diagrams

Vibration Control of Active Structures Book Excerpt:

This text is an introduction to the dynamics of active structures and to the feedback control of lightly damped flexible structures; the emphasis is placed on basic issues and simple control strategies that work. Now in its third edition, more chapters have been added, and comments and feedback from readers have been taken into account, while at the same time the unique premise of bridging the gap between structure and control has remained. Many examples and problems bring the subject to life and take the audience from theory to practice. The book has chapters dealing with some concepts in structural dynamics; electromagnetic and piezoelectric transducers; piezoelectric beam, plate and truss; passive damping with piezoelectric transducers; collocated versus non-collocated control; active damping with collocated systems; vibration isolation; state space approach; analysis and synthesis in the frequency domain; optimal control; controllability and observability; stability; applications; tendon control of cable structures; active control of large telescopes; and semi-active control. The book concludes with an exhaustive bibliography and index. This book is intended for structural engineers who want to acquire some background in vibration control; it can be used as a textbook for a graduate course on vibration control or active structures. A solutions manual is available through the publisher to teachers using this book as a textbook.

Structural Dynamics of Electronic and Photonic Systems Book Excerpt:

The proposed book will offer comprehensive and versatile methodologies and recommendations on how to determine dynamic characteristics of typical micro- and opto-electronic structural elements (printed circuit boards, solder joints, heavy devices, etc.) and how to design a viable and reliable structure that would be able to withstand high-level dynamic loading. Particular attention will be given to portable devices and systems designed for operation in harsh environments (such as automotive, aerospace, military, etc.) In-depth discussion from a mechanical engineer's viewpoint will be conducted to the key components’ level as well as the whole device level. Both theoretical (analytical and computer-aided) and experimental methods of analysis will be addressed. The authors will identify how the failure control parameters (e.g. displacement, strain and stress) of the vulnerable components may be affected by the external vibration or shock loading, as well as by the internal parameters of the infrastructure of the device. Guidelines for material selection, effective protection and test methods will be developed for engineering practice.

Structural Dynamic Analysis with Generalized Damping Models Book Excerpt:

Since Lord Rayleigh introduced the idea of viscous damping in hisclassic work "The Theory of Sound" in 1877, it has become standardpractice to use this approach in dynamics, covering a wide range ofapplications from aerospace to civil engineering. However, in themajority of practical cases this approach is adopted more formathematical convenience than for modeling the physics of vibrationdamping. Over the past decade, extensive research has been undertaken onmore general “non-viscous” damping models and vibrationof non-viscously damped systems. This book, along with a relatedbook Structural Dynamic Analysis with Generalized Damping Models:Analysis, is the first comprehensive study to cover vibrationproblems with general non-viscous damping. The author draws on hisconsiderable research experience to produce a text covering:parametric senistivity of damped systems; identification of viscousdamping; identification of non-viscous damping; and some tools forthe quanitification of damping. The book is written from avibration theory standpoint, with numerous worked examples whichare relevant across a wide range of mechanical, aerospace andstructural engineering applications. Contents 1. Parametric Sensitivity of Damped Systems. 2. Identification of Viscous Damping. 3. Identification of Non-viscous Damping. 4. Quantification of Damping. About the Authors Sondipon Adhikari is Chair Professor of Aerospace Engineering atSwansea University, Wales.
